All the posts in the trash folder of my wordpress website get deleted automatically. I never deleted it.

I have already installed the sucuri wordpress plugin and when i review it then it is showing the ip of my digital ocean droplet. What is it?

I don’t know who deleted it btw why it is showing digital ocean ip. Please help me in order to recover all those article.

Thank you!

Hi @abhisheksunny3030303030,

It sounds like you have configured a cron job or something familiar to do it automatically or you’ve deleted them without actually even noticing it.

I’ll recommend you to check your cron jobs to see if you have anything like that. Secondly, check your plugins, it’s possible there is one that’s doing it and lastly please try to remember if you actually made any changes on the mentioned date.

Lastly, as you’ve mentioned WordPress might have been compromised, you’ll need to examine your website’s files to see what’s going on.
